It did not take long for Democrats to pounce on President Donald Trump’s tweets at Rep. Elijah Cummings and his Baltimore district.Among them was former first lady, and wife of former President Obama, who suddenly decided to support a dance team in Baltimore.“
On #NationalDanceDay, I’m shouting out the Lethal Ladies, a Baltimore STEP team who I saw perform back in 2017. I’m so proud of you all—and everyone who’s dancing today!” she said.
Does anyone wonder why the former first lady would choose Sunday to give props to a dance team in Baltimore?It is not a surprise as she was joined by her fellow Democrats and their friends in the journalism profession who attacked the president.It has become a common theme.
When the Democrat Party and its members are angry at President Donald Trump, CNN is not far behind.That is what happened on Saturday when the president called the area of West Baltimore that Rep. Elijah Cummings represents a “rodent infested mess” where “no human being would want to live.”
Due to the fact that Rep. Cummings is a black man the comment was quickly called racist and then the attacks began.After sharing a number of tweets from President Trump in which he calls many districts and areas “infested” CNN host Victor Blackwell recounted his personal experience.Blackwell recounted that the president said that no human would want to live in Rep. Cummings district before crying, with no tears, and defending it.“You know who did, Mr. President?
I did,” he said. “From the day I was brought home from the hospital to the day I left for college, and a lot of people I care about still do.”“There are challenges no doubt, but people are proud of their community,” he said. “I don’t want to sound self-righteous, but people get up and go to work there.“They care for their families there.
They love their children who pledge allegiance to the flag just like people who live in districts of Congressmen who support you, sir. They are Americans, too!” he said.“.@RepCummings is a champion in the Congress and the country for civil rights and economic justice, a beloved leader in Baltimore, and deeply valued colleague.“We all reject racist attacks against him and support his steadfast leadership,” Speaker Rep. Nancy Pelosi said, citing no evidence of racism.
“’No human being would want to live there.’ Imagine the reaction from the right-wing outrage machine if @IlhanMN had made that comment about a slice of America. They quite literally would tell her to’ “go back.’” CNN reporter Oliver Darcy said.The reporters agree with the Democrats. Not a surprise.
